Octue "Game Changer" at Global Offshore Wind 2018

Octue is an ORE Catapult Gamechanger

Chosen as one of the ORE Catapult's "Game Changers" for Global Offshore Wind 2018, Octue is presenting on the subject of "Building intelligent digital twins - thorny problems and some solutions".

We're looking at three key problems in digitalisation of a fleet of assets:

  • Difficulty collaborating between teams
  • How to share knowledge and AI training between assets
  • How to keep sensitive datasets secure and siloed, whilst enabling collaboration.

Test tank to tidal channel: improved turbine load predictions

The recently completed InSTREAM project assessed fundamental differences in turbulent flow measured in the field, generated in a tank and simulated in a numerical model. InSTREAM processes enables site-specific field measurements to be translated to tank experiments, enabling numerical models (validated by tank experiments) to be used for reliable and realistic estimation of turbine and array performance.

In Situ Turbulence Replication Evaluation And Measurement (InSTREAM).

Instrumentation set-up for test tank

The flow through tidal passages is, by nature, extremely turbulent and this variability in flow speed affects the efficiency of energy extraction and the operational risks for in-stream turbines. The accurate measurement and numerical modeling of turbulence for these conditions will de-risk  the design and development of tidal energy sites and reduce their cost of operation.

A collaborative Canadian - UK research project, In Situ Turbulence Replication Evaluation And Measurement (InSTREAM ...
